How to sell your Midjourney photos on Wirestock
If you’re anything like me, your phone and computer are probably overloaded with Midjourney images. Wouldn’t it be great if we could use all our images to make a little side income?
Although it’s great news that most stock-photo sites now accept AI-generated imagery, uploading and licensing your photos to each stock photo website separately can be quite a headache. That’s why I recommend using Wirestock.io.
Wirestock.io is a free service that helps you upload and sell all your photos on popular stock photo websites (that accept AI-generated photos) like Adobe Stock, Shutterstock, and iStock.

The easiest way to sell photos online
Wirestock’s one-door access covers all the hassle that comes with licensing your images.
All you have to do is upload your work (no forms, keywords, captions, or payments required), and Wirestock.io takes care of the rest.
After uploading your images to Wirestock, you remain the sole owner of the content forever.
How much money can I make selling AI-generated photography
Wirestock offers a great platform to earn extra money from your AI art. The average (active) user of Wirestock earns between 30 USD and 100 USD per month.
Of course, there are exceptions, as some members make far less or substantially more than this.
You will get 85% of all royalties earned through Wirestock. So if your photo sells for $2 on a stock agency, you will get $1.70, and Wirestock earns $0.30.
The earnings will be displayed on your dashboard. At the end of each month, you will be paid the total amount earned if the balance on your account exceeds the minimum payout amount of $30.00.
Wirestock has multiple payout options and currently supports PayPal and Payoneer.
My personal opinion on Wirestock
Even though this monthly payout might not seem much, I think it’s a wonderful way to generate some extra side income and will surely help me pay for my Midjourney subscription each month.
And truthfully, if I’d had to upload each of my photos separately to all platforms, I wouldn’t even consider selling my Midjourney images in the first place.

Wirestock Premium Plan
Wirestock also offers an optional paid premium plan with various additional features, including extra marketplace submissions, Portfolio Pro, faster keywording and review process, and the ability to download files with metadata.
You can get on the premium plan for $7.79/month (paid annually) and $12.99/month (paid monthly).
Upscale your Midjourney images
Before you upload your images, it’s essential to upscale them first. You can do so with the free tool Upscale.Media.
If you plan on selling many photos, a paid tool with batch upload functionality like Gigapixel will be more suitable.
What kind of images sell best on Stock photo websites
It’s important to research which of your images will actually sell on stock photo marketplaces.
Stock photos are used for commercial and editorial purposes. Most companies that use stock photos are news publishers, blogs, and commercial sites like Groupon.
Although generic lifestyle images will do well for these categories, it can be helpful to niche down and offer a slightly more unique portfolio.
Follow trendy aesthetics
Keep an eye out for Instagram and Tiktok trends. Many online publishers will write about trendy viral topics and start looking for matching stock photography.
Also, make sure you’re on top of any seasonal trend like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc but upload them well in advance for optimal sales.
Here are ten popular stock photo categories:
- Creative Portraits
- Wes Anderson Aesthetic
- Healthy Food
- Colorful Cityscapes
- Travel Photography
- Wedding Photography
I don’t recommend uploading your very personal artistic style, as these images usually aren’t suitable for commercial use.
Midjourney Model Licensing
Midjourney models don’t technically exist, which means they can’t fill out a Model/Property Permission form.
If you upload photos with AI-generated models to Wirestock, you can fill out your own personal information for registration.
Make sure to pay extra attention to the details of your images, as Midjourney is renowned for adding some extra fingers and legs here and there 😉
